Harvest Blessings Card and Tag - Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is hands down my favorite Holiday.  For me, it is all about family, and friends (and food!)  This year, I am blessed to be spending it with my parents and also some really good friends.  Of course we will have lots of food too!  



For today's project I made a card and a matching tag, since this will be given to our Thanksgiving Hostess this year (Mom).  I made the tag to put on a bottle of wine as a hostess gift. 

I started by twice stamping the beautiful cornucopia image and leaves from Sweet and Sassy Harvest Blessings stamp set.   It's a great little set, perfect for this occasion.  I colored everything with Copic markers.  I cut out the cornucopia and the leaves.

On the card, I took a piece of watercolor paper and used Distress Inks to color the background.  I used Mowed Lawn, Fired Brick, Mustard Seed and Seedless Preserves.  I dried it with my heat gun, and then used the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches die to cut it out.


I heat embossed the Happy Thanksgiving sentiment from Altenew With Gratitude Stamp set using Gold embossing powder.  I wound some gold thread loosely around my fingers and taped it to the back of the cut out Cornucopia image and then added Scotch foam tape and mounted the entire piece on my background.



This shaker tag is a little different, because it is see through.  For the tag, I cut out the 2 shaker tags using the Dotted Shaker Tag set from Studio Katia.  I adhered some Judikins clear acetate in each window and on one tag, I added two layers of Scotch Foam tape.  I filled the shaker with sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, and put the two tags together.  I added my second colored Cornucopia to the front and I stamped the "thanks" from Studio Katia Giving Thanks stamp set on clear acetate using black Stazon ink. I cut it out and mounted the sentiment on the top of the tag. I added a ribbon that will slip over a bottle of wine to dress up my gift.

That is all for today!  I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving this week, and I will see you next Monday!

Cheers,
Jacquie

  1. So very pretty. So for the background with distress inks...is that with water or just a distress foam applicator?

Baby Tags featuring the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool!

Happy Monday! This is Kim Hamilton and I am so very excited to be sharing my first post with you for Butterfly Reflections Ink! This is making my first day back to work after a two-week break a happy one! I am sharing baby gift tags today, one of my friends is expecting and not sure what she is having so I made one of each!

I used my We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool for the first time and loved it! I cut my own Tim Holtz watercolor paper to the size of tag I wanted (2 3/4 x 4 1/4) and cut the edges with my trimmer.  I stamped my sentiments that are by Lawn Fawn Hello Baby with VersaMark ink and used white embossing powder. For the girl tag I used a mix of Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral Distress Inks and for the boy tag I used Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron Distress Inks.  I sprayed both tags with some water and dabbed it off. I then stamped my images by My Favorite Things Snuggle Bunnies for the girl and Magical Dragons for the boy.  I colored m…

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway

Hey, hey BRI friends!  We're hopping today to celebrate the 4th Birthday of Altenew, one of our favorite stamping companies!  You should have arrived here from the Altenew blog, and we're glad you're here to share the excitement! There are prizes and inspiration and it's going to be FUN!

With you today, is Norine from The Velvet Lemon creating for Butterfly Reflections Ink and I have some projects to share today, that I made using some recently released Altenew products.  
First up, are these two cards created with the Mega Succulent stamp set.  

I stamped the image onto water color paper using the MISTI, then turned on the music and sat and colored.

  I used Faber Castell watercolor pencils so I could more easily control where the color would sit and then painted with a water brush.  I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of vellum, heat embossed with clear embossing powder to ensure that the ink wouldn't smudge, then tore the vellum and wrapped it around the card …

Painting backwards....

Hello, hello!  Norine here from The Velvet Lemon blog.  It's been a week for introductions hasn't it, but let me just say how delighted I am to have been invited to join such a talented group of paper crafters, and to contribute here at Butterfly Reflections Ink!  
Today I'm sharing with you, some cards I made by working backwards. 
What do I mean, you wonder?  Well, it's a technique I sometimes enjoy doing, where you "smoosh" your water based ink pads on a craft mat, mist the colors with water and then drag your water color paper through it to create a pretty mess of color.    
For today's cards, I wanted a blend of blues and greens (always a crowd pleaser) and yellows/pinks.  You will always be happier with the results when you keep the green/blues from overlapping with the yellow/pinks, because that just produces an unappealing mud color.  

I used a variety of Tim Holtz Distress Inks for this project, but any water based inks will work the same.  It&#…
